"Pardon The Sun" Single Review
Third & Delaware are a young up and coming band from Dallas, TX which incorporates the sounds of Metalcore, Post Hardcore and melody into a familiar, yet fresh sound. They recently released their "Pardon The Sun" single go let's dive in and see what they're all about. The track kicks off with a slow build before erupting into a Post hardcore/atmospheric breakdown. It's a tremendous way to start things off. Once the breakdown subsides, the track goes full speed ahead with a more Melodic Metalcore sound with driving instrumentation with harsh vocals on top of ground shaking breakdowns. The clean sung chorus really elevates the track to the new heights as it has shades of Emery or even a touch of Underoath. The melodic instrumentation is top notch later in the track and once the vocals kick back in, all bets are off. The track ends on a high note as breakdowns and melody put a little bow on the masterpiece of a heavy, yet melodic single. Keep your ears and eyes on Third & Delaware if you want a perfect mix of Metalcore and Post Hardcore.

Verdict:
Third & Delaware blast onto the Metalcore/Post Hardcore scene with their new single.

-Interview- (7/2/17)
1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Third & Delaware” and is there any meaning behind it?

Eric: My life has always been surrounded by music, ever since I was a wee-lad obsessed with Van Halen. My brother really helped me get going though teaching me the basics of guitar.

Revin: The idea of Third & Delaware is actually from the show Roseanne. Anytime they cut to a scene of their house it shows the cross streets of Third & Delaware and just thought it was a cool band name!


2. What do you want people to take away from your newly released "Pardon The Sun" single?

Revin: We hope people catch the wide dynamic Pardon has where it'll jump from really heavy chugs to sweet sing along parts in a flash. I hope as soon as a part seems to lean too much in one direction we switch it up to touch on another genre whether that be instrumentally or vocally.

Eric: What I really want people to take away from pardon, or any of our music for that matter, is just the shared love of music and the joy that it brings us all. Thats what keeps me doing music everyday, I love it and won't quit till I'm dead.


3. What can people expect from your live show?

Eric: Inconsistencies. But in all seriousness, fun. Just have fun, Isn't that what shows are for?

Sean: Exactly what Eric said. Honestly, I just want people to come hang out and have fun. For me, music has always been a way to get people together and have a good time.


4. What's your favorite track to play live? Why?

Eric: As of right now my favorite track has to be either "Heart of Fire" or "Antarctica", they both have so many jammin' sections it's really hard to chose just one.

Zane: "Generations", for sure. There are a lot of hybrid picking that's been integrated into the song, and it's fun and challenging.


5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Josh: What's cool with this band (and most in general) we all have different influences and I think it shows in a lot of our parts. I personally would love to jump on warped tour. Band specific would be both The Devil Wears Prada and Bring Me The Horizon.

Eric: Wage War, Dance Gavin Dance and August Burns Red.


6. Any crazy show stories?

Josh: In a show, a while back we had a mosh pit going on and a few people got launched in my direction and took out my entire rig!


7. What’s your take on the current state of Metalcore/Post Hardcore?

Eric: Too much elitism. If you like it you like it, if you don't you don't. no need to stay away from bands because, "they're not Deathcore bro".

Sean: Metalcore seems steady to me. Some bands are hanging it up, but new ones are always popping up to replace them. There's enough of a demand that it'll probably always exist in one form or another, even if the bands evolve a bit.


8. What’s the current music scene like in Texas both locally and state wide?

Eric: I feel like Texas has always been very strong when it comes to producing musicians, its almost like Texas is ~7.5% of America or something.

Revin: We have an amazing scene in Dallas. All bands support and bounce off each other on shows and festivals. Couldn't be situated in a better spot in my opinion.


9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

Eric: If you want to keep hearing new music from your favorite bands you have to support them, recording, gear, touring is expensive and it can't be accomplished without the help of the fans.

Zane: I personally don't care if people download our stuff illegally or not, just as long as they're listening.


10. What’s next for Third & Delaware?

Sean: Finish the EP by the end of the year!

Josh: A full EP, a new music video, and hopefully we'll release a first record that our fans will always say is our best record no matter how many songs we make after it!


11. Any shoutouts?

Eric: I would like to give a huge thanks to my Brother for introducing me into becoming a musician, Moniker Guitars for endorsing my boy Arwezy, Russel Hollar for doing a stellar job on tracking and mixing our mess of noises, and Devin King for all of our merch!

Revin: Thanks to From the Depths for having us! Likewise, another shout-out to Moniker Guitars and Russell Hollar Production. Also a huge thanks to our friends and family. It takes a lot to put together a solid product and it often cuts into the time to spend with them, so thanks for being patient and supporting the group!
